If you've ever dreamed of living steps from the water, a condo on the beach is probably already your ideal home.

Taking a dip in the water any time you want. Enjoying fresh-caught seafood every day of the year. Working on your tan long before and long after your too-short vacation.

If this sounds perfect, you might already be ready to start shopping. But if you're still on the fence about taking a leap and buying a property, keep reading. We're bringing you 10 sure signs that you're ready for the beach life!

1. You're Always Dreaming About Your Next Vacay...

You find yourself daydreaming about gentle waves and warm sun. You're constantly scanning airline and hotel sites looking for a good deal. You scroll through your friends' pics on Facebook, racking up some major vacation-envy.

In short, you're always dreaming about your next vacation.

While a little daydreaming never hurt anyone, too much can leave you feeling distracted and unable to get anything done.

But by buying a condo in South Carolina, you'll always have a place to go when you need to get away!

2. ...And You Spend Your Whole Vacation Dreading Going Home

Daydreaming in between getaways is bad enough. But if your hatred of going back home after an incredible trip the beach starts causing you to think about it constantly, even when you're on vacation, it becomes a major problem.

Whether you're retired with tons of free time on your hands or you only have a few precious vacation days, it's important to make the most of them. That means enjoying every second and being present in the moment.

If you're just counting down the hours until you have to go home and dreading getting back in the car or boarding a plane, you can't do that.

When you own a condo, your vacation time has no deadline.

3. You'll Have More Free Time

One of the biggest perks of condo life is having more time to do the things you love, like spending time with family.

No more grass to cut. No more landscaping to carefully maintain. No more worrying about painting the outside of your home or complying with housing association rules.

Owning a condo means never having to worry about time-consuming maintenance projects in and around your home.

That leaves you with more time to spend doing what you like with the people you love the most!

4. You'll Create Lasting Memories

Condos and vacation homes are places where families come together year after year to create lasting memories.

By buying a condo in Myrtle Beach, you'll be creating a place that your children, grandchildren, and other relatives can come together to enjoy a fun vacation.

Year after year your family can return and continue to build on those memories. That's a beautiful legacy to leave behind!

If the property stays in your family, multiple generations may even get to experience a vacation there.

5. You Wait All Winter to Tan and Hate Winter Clothes

While Myrtle Beach may not enjoy year-round tropical temps, it is still far warmer than anywhere further north along the east coast.

If you spend your winter days bundled up in a coat that you can't stand, dreaming of working on your tan, then its probably a sign that you're ready for a change.

Myrtle Beach rarely experiences freezes temperatures or harsh winter weather that other parts of the country suffer through. Plus, summers are longer, which means more time to enjoy the sun and sand!

6. You Love Seafood

If you're a seafood lover, then you know that frozen fish and lake or river catches are a far cry from a fresh catch of the day.

There's no better place to get seafood than straight from the source. And what better way to do so than by moving to the coast?

Myrtle Beach is packed with restaurants and markets selling fish so fresh that it was still swimming hours before you put it on your plate.

Cook it up yourself or enjoy it at one of the hundreds of delicious restaurants in the area.

7. You Want a Healthier Lifestyle

While it's possible to lead a healthy lifestyle from anywhere, beachfront condos make it even easier.

Warmer weather means more time for enjoying outdoor activities like swimming, walking, or hiking. Living on the beach is a great way to get inspired to get outside and moving more often.

Studies show that vacations help decrease stress, boost focus and productivity, help you sleep better, and may even help to prevent heart disease. Living in Myrtle Beach is like enjoying a year-round vacation, which adds up to lots of health benefits for your body and mind!

8. Sandals Are Your Favorite Footwear

If you've ever spent a long winter in heavy snow boots, you know just how good it feels to slip into flip flops on the first warm day of spring or summer.

But what if you never had to put those boots on again? In Myrtle Beach, the locals wear flip-flops year-round!

9. You Don't Mind Swimsuit Shopping

Many people, including women, in particular, dread having to go to a store to try on swimsuits. But if you're one of those rare people who is just as comfortable in lycra as you are in a t-shirt and heads, then its time you move to the beach.

If you're someone who starts trying on suits the day that department stores decide that its time to display them, it's likely a sign that you should be spending more time wearing what you love.

10. You're Retired (Or Will Be in the Future)

If you're retired or plan to be soon, a condo in Myrtle Beach is a great investment.

You'll get a home or vacation home that is ready to go and work-free. No more worrying about cutting your own grass or maintaining your property.

While Myrtle Beach may be a busy tourist destination during the summer months, the rest of the year it is an oasis for locals who enjoy a slower pace of life in this beautiful destination.

Retiring there means the chance to experience a whole new side of the vacation destination!
